With the U.S. election approaching and a significant resurgence in the Black Lives Matter movement, East Bay writer Adam Smyer is pleased about the Sept. 1 timing of the release of his humorous new volume, “You Can Keep That to Yourself: A Comprehensive List of What Not to Say Black People, for Well-Intentioned People of Pallor.”

“I’m delighted to have a book coming out at this moment,” says Smyer, adding, “I would have been delighted to have a book coming out anyway. For selfish reasons, I’d rather have this all be completely irrelevant, that I live my life unmolested.”
